Indoor air quality

Winter is coming soon. This means we will be spending more time indoors. We've invited Dr. Miriam Diamond of the University of Toronto to talk about ways to improve indoor air quality and to reduce the health impacts of indoor air contaminants. Show notes 10m55s VOCs are volatile organic compounds. These substances are contained in building materials, cigarette, cleaning products, air fresheners, glues and moth repellants. People can be exposed to these compounds through inhaling VOC gases or skin contact with products that contain these chemicals. VOCs can induce nausea, dizziness, fatigue, headache and irritation of the respiratory system and eyes. Long term exposure to these compounds is associated with cancer, kidney and liver problems.
